There were lovely meanders through coastal villages full of old-fashioned charm and beautiful flowers.
Our own garden flowers were magnificent this season, as were the many rose-hued sunsets.
We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to adopt a big white rabbit named Lucky. He and Indiana Jones became fast friends.
Amid the bright summertime, there was some darkness, too. The winds of change and uncertainty continue to blow briskly here, and I continue to pray and hope in Christ. Only He knows what tomorrow will bring. Through Him I have learned to treasure every small bit of loveliness and peace, and to nurture within myself and others a grateful spirit.
I haven't been able to blog all summer, and considering my present circumstances I almost decided to give it up entirely, especially since so many of my favorite bloggers have moved on to Instagram. But, my family really enjoys my blog, and it is the only form of social media in which I participate. So, here I am at a new place.☺ My old blog is still up for the moment, but I will likely remove it in the coming weeks. I plan to post here as frequently as I can; only I have no idea how often that will be.
